BOB MANROSS SAID he often keeps a firearm handy because of his
area's crime problem. "I don't take any chances," he said. That
proved good policy when a man broke into his home, called him by
name and said he would shoot him unless he handed over his money. "I
told him I didn't have the money with me, but I'd get it from the
other room," said the 77-year-old Manross, who had a rifle at the
ready nearby. "He wasn't expecting me to come back through here and
shoot him." Manross shot the burglar, whom he recognized as a man
living nearby. He directed police to the suspect's home, where they
found him suffering from a gunshot wound. "I am not proud of what I
have done," Manross said of the incident, "but I have to protect my
wife and my house."
